Gajera International School celebrated Navratri celebration with great enthusiasm and fun.
‘Navratri’, is one of the major and important festival celebrated to worship the Goddess ‘Durga’. The festival of Navratri is celebrated in many different ways in India and in various regions.
The state of Gujarat has a unique way of celebrating Navaratri. And it is this version of the celebrations that has seeped into popular culture. Devotees observe fast for nine days to honor Durga and her nine different incarnations. Every evening, women who are fasting dedicate their prayers to an earthen pot lit with divas (candles). The pot, called garbo, represents the source of life and the light represents shakti (power).
For many people it is a time of religions reflection wherein people are seen fasting, whereas for others it is a time for dancing and feasting.
